Neighbourhood construction issues: your input needed!

1A_housesThe City of Toronto is planning to conduct a survey to “improve (its) response to nuisance type issues at residential infill construction sites.”
SERRA will provide input into the way the City conducts this survey.
SERRA plans to formally survey all its members for issues that relate to construction so that we can aggregate and submit the data we gather to city hall. These data will be extremely valuable for the following reasons:
  1. Councillor Josh Matlow has expressed an interest in advocating for residents within his ward who have concerns related to construction matters
  2. The data SERRA collects will act as a means of identifying which specific construction issues are of greatest concern to residents so that they can be addressed in order of importance
  3. SERRA will have a stronger voice when working with the City since we can substantiate the concerns of residents in the neighbourhood
  4. Our research and data collection can be used as a model for other neighbourhood associations in the city, many of which have already expressed interest in contributing to our initiative

Please contact us now with your thoughts about construction matters in the neighbourhood. We would also be interested in receiving your thoughts about what you believe can be done about mitigating the issues you raise.
